If you read the full thread you linked, you'll see that you reached
the exact same conclusion as was reached there.

Some AV products hold exclusive locks on files longer than they
should. The Subversion libraries do make some accommodations here and
attempt several times to access those files (in hopes that they'll be
unlocked), but there is a time or attempt limit to prevent it from
going on too long.

Real-time scanners inspect files every time they're updated. No
specific action "kicks it off", that's just how it's designed to work.
The solution is to either replace it with a better-behaved package, or
instruct it to ignore your .svn directories.
